Why Feed Raw?

FACT: Medical research has shown that the vast majority of ailments in animals stem from poor nutrition.

Raw meat and vegetables contain natural antioxidants and enzymes that are essential for maintaining optimal physiological function and the overall health of your pet. These are destroyed in any cooking and extruding process.

Skin, dental and degenerative problems, as well as obesity (so common in our domestic animals on commercial dry diets) can be avoided by feeding natural raw food.

Seeing is believing…

Those who switch from kibble to raw diets are most likely to appreciate the overwhelming benefits in the health and well-being of their cats and dogs. Noticeable benefits include:

  • Improved energy;
  • Better dental health (White teeth, free of tartar and dental disease);
  • Sweeter breath;
  • Smoother, shinier coats;
  • Chronic allergies, itches and infections subside and/or disappear;
  • Fewer trips to the vet;
  • Reduced gas;
  • Major changes in the amount, consistency and odour of poop! (Easier to pick up / degrades quickly into the soil)

Unlike kibble, raw food diets are appropriate for all breeds and all life stages. Puppies and kittens can therefore be safely weaned directly onto the same food as their adult counterparts. In fact, puppies and kittens develop best when their mothers are on a protein rich diet during pregnancy and lactation.
